Full steam ahead for massive hospital project

01 Sep 2011

The £842m South Glasgow Hospital project, the largest NHS project to be undertaken in Scotland, is progressing on time and on budget.

It is now less than four years until the New South Glasgow Hospital Campus will be fully open for business. Glasgow's new £842million "super-hospital" is on track to be delivered on schedule and on budget, according to the man in charge of the mammoth project.

The project is scheduled for completion in February 2015 and will involve the creation of a new adult hospital, children hospital and large maternity unit.

The New South Glasgow Hospital Campus will provide the ultimate "gold-standard" of healthcare, with acute adult, paediatric and maternity services located together for the first time in the city.

The children's hospital is expected to be operational first with the adult one slightly later because it involves the transfer of services from the Western Infirmary, the Southern General and the Victoria Infirmary.

Work on the two new hospitals, which is being carried out by Brookfield Construction, is already under way following the completion of a new £75m super-laboratory.

A series of articles in the Evening Times is focussing on the hospital build:
